Journalist Nicholas Webley made a remarkable find in a house in Norfolk - a diary kept during the Second World War, scribbled for the most part in school exercise books and on scraps of paper, and written, as it turned out, by Betty Armitage, a seamstress born in the 1880s. In her diary, the events of the war years are experienced in the country; privation relieved by the occasional poached pheasant, upheaval as thousands of young US servicemen "invade" East Anglia, quiet heroes and small-time rural villains. The era springs to life in the pages of Betty's diary - funny, touching, and unaffectedly vivid.
